Infertility testing and treatment
If you’re having problems getting pregnant, we’ll find out why and offer treatment options.
Infertility is defined as having regular, unprotected sex for one year without getting pregnant. If you’re concerned that you’re infertile, talk with your doctor. There are many causes of infertility, and both men and women can be infertile.
The doctors in The Polyclinic obstetrics and gynecology will work with you to find out why you haven’t been able to get pregnant. The process varies by patient and may include:
- Physical exams
- Complete review of your health history
- Ultrasound of the lower belly
- Sperm count (measures the quality of a man’s semen and sperm)
Our goal is to identify the reasons for infertility and to offer treatment options and/or suggest further testing.
We also offer basic treatments to help correct infertility. These include lifestyle changes, medications and some surgeries. For more complex cases, we’ll refer you to a specialist for more testing and treatments.
